The New York Times Sinks to a New Journalistic Low in its Reporting on Ukraine Either out of Russophobic deceit or incompetence, the Times seems determined to deny that murders by snipers were committed by anti-government protesters, probably with the help of the CIA, that sparked the coup in Kiev that overturned Viktor Yanukovych's democratically elected government.

Military Victories by Ukraine's Separatists Cause Heads to Explode at the New York Times The New York Times, like much of the knee-jerk anti-Russia West, is in a panic, due to a string of victories by the separatists in Eastern Ukraine. As a consequence, cunning, deceit and derangement have become substitutes for responsible journalism.

The West's Hysterical Pseudo-Environment, Operation RYAN, and World War III The world nearly suffered a preemptive nuclear attack by the Soviet Union in 1983, after incessant hostile rhetoric by the U.S. reached its peak with the downing of KAL-007. It convinced Soviet leaders that U.S-NATO exercise in November was a cover for an actual preemptive nuclear strike.

Who's Responsible for Shooting Down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17? Although the mainstream news media remains absorbed in the anti-Russia, anti-separatist narrative propagated by the White House, less than bullet-proof evidence has emerged to indicate that the shoot down of Flight MH17 was a false flag operation.

Examining the Flashpoints in Ukraine The crisis in Ukraine, in the final analysis, boils down to Russia's willingness to go to war rather than allow NATO forces and weapons in its back yard. Americans should understand, given that their leaders once threatened nuclear war over the issue of Russian missiles in Cuba.

Why Russia Probably will not Bomb Kiev's Forces in Eastern Ukraine Although President George H. W. Bush set a precedent when he ordered the bombing of Panama, which he justified in part by claiming a need to protect the lives of Americans living there, it is unlikely that President Putin will bomb Kiev's coup regime forces in eastern Ukraine to protect the many Russians living there. Russia is not the mad bomber that America has become.

Part Two: The Propaganda War over Ukraine: The New York Times vs. Russia's "White Book" (December 2013) Incompetent or dishonest reporting by the Times in December 2013 caused readers to miss the violence perpetrated by neo-Nazis at Maidan and, thus, believe that a legitimate revolution was occurring, rather than an illegal coup.

Part One: The Propaganda War over Ukraine: The New York Times vs. Russia's "White Book" As early as 28 November 2013, the New York Times decided to launch a propaganda campaign against Russia for its "strong-arm tactics" against Ukraine. It has continued to this day.

The Hypocritical United States of Amnesia and Russia Due to its amnesia, Americans forget the many violations of national sovereignty committed by their government, as well as NATO's and the EU's relentless expansionism that now threatens to encircle Russia. All they see, alas, is Putin's interference in the Crimea.

Did Right-Wing Protesters Hire Snipers to Kill Protesters and Police at Maidan? Evidence indicates that protesters in Ukraine hired snipers whose murders could be blamed on the government of Viktor Yanukovych. Rather than rushing to recognize such people as the new rulers in Ukraine, the US, EU and Russia must investigate. In the process, Vladimir Putin's decision to send troops to the Crimea might be seen in a new light.

Fox News, Benghazi and President Reagan Fox News deals in misinformation and lies. It misled it viewers during the election campaign and it is misleading them on Benghazi. What they won't do, however, is compare the attack on Benghazi with the three attacks on the U.S. in Beirut -- in 18 months! -- during President Reagan's watch.
